Your computer actually shuts down and powers off during the encoding? Encoding is often CPU intensive. If your CPU overheats it could cause the computer to shut down. What is your ffmpeg command and the full ffmpeg output?

You should also check your CPU temperature when you are encoding. Try using a CPU Temperature applet (right click on the panel and click add to panel then choose the applet).
